Oh, gee. Forgot to say I found it.
Yes, I found the TTT Theatrical Release DVD, and the next day or so perhaps. So I've had it for a few days now and have loaned it to my mom.
But more important than that: I saw the Return of the King! I went to the midnight show. I was beautiful, if I do say so myself, in my dress! Quite a few people complimented us.
And then the movie played. Oh, it was spectacular, absolutely breathtaking. There were, of course, some disappointments with changes or missing parts, but there is always the Extended DVD that will most likely do much to remedy the worst of these. Still, it's worth seeing at least 8 times! I hope I can afford it. ;-)
And I actually squeaked during the coronation scene. Yep, squeaked. Just when you thought Legolas couldn't get anymore gorgeous. Gulp We were wrong! Be still my beating heart. I'm still swooning and it's been a day and half! I've so got to see this again soon!
